EIGHT members of a dental practice who are more used to keeping clean will get muddy for charity this weekend.

The team from Gentle Dental Care, of London Road, Worcester, are preparing themselves for the Race for Life Pretty Muddy Run in Birmingham tomorrow (Saturday).

The 5k obstacle course will see the team climbing, jogging and walking through the dirt to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Manager Sarah Coopey said: "We are really looking forward to it . We're like a family here and we do quite a lot for charity and this is certainly a great cause that is close to many of our hearts.

"However, I am very nervous about it. I'm not normally one for walking round filthy so that is going to be tough. But we're all excited about taking part and we are wondering who will make it to the finish line."
